Visit to Calca

Today our new friend Joel Silva offered to be our driver for the day. We were so blessed to have him with us for the day. We visited Elder Jeffery's pension who has a humble restaurant. She welcomed us in and served us lunch. I watched in amazement as she ran from the small humble kitchen to the out door eating area helping everyone. Her restaurant was surrounded by her humble home. We spent the day driving around the city visiting many members and investigators. The one family we will never forget lived in the most humble home we had yet to see.  As we sat on small stools in the dirt admiring the view of the mountains around, finally understanding why they build there homes with this roofless living area. As always the mother and children were busy in the small kitchen.We not knowing what they preparing. We went in to say our final good byes to find they had killed a family chicken and the 17 year old was prepairing it for us to eat. There style of living I would compare to camping and not like camping at the camp grounds realy roughing it.
